She’s smiling but shes crying, cant you see her heart is broken? It’s like her love was stolen. You had her wide open.
Now tears flow. Shes grown.
Reminiscing of her investment.
The time spent with her king.
No, Her prince, because he was yet a boy.
See boys fill voids by toying when they get bored. Single file. Line em up. Compare. Dark skin, light skin, short/long hair.
Hoarder. They keep them all for sentimental value then toss them aside instead of saving their time waiting on the sidelines.
This isn’t elementary school. No closet space to save her for a rainy day. No backpack to stuff her in just in case you want to play. We aren’t on the way to granny’s house.
We aren’t at Granny’s house.
Act one, Scene 2: Granny’s House.
Over the river and through the woods. Granny’s house had a toy room. She gave him a room where she made him keep his trivial novelties far from her fine China.
She knew how destructive he could be. especially since he takes after his daddy.
He takes after his daddy.
Woody was his favorite until he found a new Buzz.He found a new Buzz..
A new- buzz. A new high. A new drug.
So he left it to be drug.
Habits formed young. Just go out have fun. Throw them back in the toy chest when you’re done. Yeah, have two! You don’t just have to have one.
And since you can’t play with both at the same time, where is the marker let’s make a line on the bottom of the foot. You don’t have to share tell them, “don’t touch just look”. Those toys are yours I bought them just for you.
Theres no coincidence that Woody was lifeless in your your presence. Morbid. Watching you float with you new buzz. Buzz isn’t real. It’ll take light years to make it clear. Your buzz isn’t real.
Granny used to say he liked you if he hit you. Love taps. If he broke your toys he was flirting with you. All facts. Okay now Granny, I’m questioning you. Questioning your voice of truth because you never told me if he broke ME what I was supposed to do.
Granny had me sold that these ideologies were the green light for accepting fluke apologies. Picks and teases. The pain and weakness.
So free without you. So “me” without you. So many life lessons learned from looking back at that playroom.
I learned that you’re just a boy and i’m no toy. I’m a princess. An Empress.
Giver of life and all things we believe in. I am light and your darkness can’t hide me. I’m screaming loud now & I can’t be bound now. You cant drown the sound of the steam from my tears as my rays hit the ground now.
Smoke signals forever.
I will be seen and heard. I know my worth.
Excuse me Mister: Fine china doesn’t belong in your playroom.
Collectors items don’t belong in your playroom.
Limited editions don’t belong in your playroom.
Granny taught me to put your nice things away where people can’t mess them up. I’ve been messed up too much. Enough is enough.
Showcase & shelve me. Place me up high. Handle with care. This China doll is no toy and belongs no where near your playroom.
